Unified Patent Court
A single patent court for Member States of the European Union
The UPC will offer a dedicated CMS platform to allow external users to practice EIF functionalities. This practice period will start as of the 29th of May and will last for an unlimited duration.
The environment will be the same as the current Sunrise practice: CERUS https://cerus.unified-patent-court.org/login, on which the EIF functionalities will be activated.
The Court will only ensure a passive practice. Interactions with external users and the Court as foreseen in the CMS will be limited. It means that the progression of the workflows and the procedures is not guaranteed. The UPC staff is currently working on EIF preparation andSunrise running activities and cannot be dedicated for the EIF practice tasks. Therefore, we kindly request users to limit their requests, to which the Court will respond on best effort basis.
In addition to the EIF scope during the external practice, all Sunrise functionalities will remain available, including APIs requests.
Please note that:
Disclaimer: this communication contains information and requirements that applies only to the External EIF Practice Period, starting as of May 29, 2023.
